McMillan Sand Filtration Site tour -- Saturday, 09-17-2011

From ANC 5C04 Commissioner John Salatti. Note that the lengthy waiver text is * not * supplied here.

Good morning!

In our neighborhood, we have one of Washington's most unique places, the McMillan Sand Filtration Site. This 25-acre site bounded by the unit blocks of Michigan Avenue and Channing Street and the 2500 through 2900 blocks of First Street and North Capitol Street is a mystery to many people. But it need not stay a mystery. To that end, I am pleased to announce that, by popular request, the Site will be open for tours this Saturday, September 17, 2011.

Tours will start at 11:00 a.m. and anyone is welcome (although I must admit that the site if not accessible for someone with a physical impairment). I have included below the waiver form that anyone attending the tour must fill out. So if you can fill out it, sign it, and e-mail it back to me, that would be great. You can also fill out it and bring it with you Saturday morning. That will save a lot of time.

I really encourage people to come and see McMillan, whether you have just moved here and have wondered what that lonely place is up First Street, or whether you have lived here all your life and know exactly what the Site is and was. It is both amazing and beautiful.

Please let me know if you have any questions.
